"...My riveting dreams still retreat from the ledge...I'm still getting by..."
|Someone good-looking, honest and stable,
To make her feel pretty and a little bit wild.
A fan whose supportive, open, and able,
To help guide a woman’s strong inner child.
With all the emotion of youth’s tender spirit,
The have and have-not’s seek life’s compromise…
The young and old folks waiting so long to have it,
Their loves making life appear healthy and wise.
My riveting dreams still retreat from the ledge
Of the youth and deceptions that never relax.
Emotionally, I’m quite symbolic of knowledge
That I'm still getting by and not made of wax…
